    I’m so saddened to learn of Linda’s passing. My condolences to her family and friends. I worked with Linda years ago, and we became good friends over Facebook. She always had a heart of gold and was so generous and giving. The ‘conversations’ we’d have back then over my Hartford Whalers and her beloved Bruins were legendary. RIP Linda, I will miss talking on Facebook, seeing your comments on posts and watching you get ready for Christmas in September. I’m glad to call you my friend.

    I’m also so saddened to hear about Linda, who I shared the KFRR common thread with. She was always the most positive person and had a smile to light up the room! Too many memories of the “collection corner” of the office to share. My sincere condolences to her family, and hope the happy memories help ease some of the sorrow. Rest In Peace. 🙏🏻

    I am so sad to hear the news of Linda’s passing. I first met Linda over 30 years ago. We worked together for many years (laughed a lot) and we stayed in touch long after, and even more in the last few years thanks to social media. Linda was so kind and always had something nice to say. I will miss her. My deepest sympathy to her family.

    Words cannot express my shock and sadness when I learned of Linda’s passing. I have known Linda for 50 years and will miss our “chats”. She had a huge heart and a contagious laugh. Her friendship was a blessing. My condolences to Donna, Bobby and her extended family.

    I am just finding out this Devastating news today 5/16/23. I haven’t been on Facebook and have not seen Linda on there either. I was thinking something was going on with Bobby. I messaged her in December with no response, which was unusual. Now I know why… Shock, Heartbroken, and in Total Denial, I am right now. This is an Impossibility. Not Beautiful, Fun, full of Life and Love Linda. My Best Client and Friend in the Hair Salon. The one I would do anything for. Oh Linda not you…My Lovely Wonderful Pure of Heart Friend.. I can’t believe I will never get to see that Smiling Face and The Laughing we do together. That’s all we ever did was Laugh Constantly. My Best Friend, I will miss you until I get to see you again. I am So Sorry we didn’t see each other the last couple of years. But you were never out of my mind and Heart, I think you know that. You had many no blood sisters and I felt like one of them. I Love you my Best Girl,, May you Rest with the Angels and the Family and Friends that have gone before you. Especially your Mom. You are with her now. RIP Sweet Linda… You will Always be Remembered Daily. I am So Sorry Bobby, I didn’t know, Please forgive me… Prayer for you, and this is 100% not fair. We need people like her here to Spread Happiness and Joy. I just don’t understand why the Good ones have to pass. I really don’t…..
